I've had migraines on and off from the time I was about 14, but in the past year, I have had them 15 to 20 days out of 30. I've had 2 MRI's and one CAT scan. I'm on my 3rd preventative, 3rd abortive, take Lortab and Naproxen like it's going out of style, changed my diet (with minimal splurges), got a glare screen for my computer at work...

But the fatigue, the numbness in my left hand, arm, leg, foot and face, the blackouts, the HORRIBLE pain in my head, the loss of vision, not being able to be in the sun, puking up my toenails, not to mention all the side effects from the meds I take... when do you trade in your old life and take the one the world of migraines is trying to shove on you? When is enough enough? When do you throw in the towel and say, "All right, you win. I give up,"? I know I sound like a whiney baby, I am just feeling a little overwhelmed by the head monster today. Thanks for listening... or reading... you know what I mean. :)

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
